My self-summary
Take a bowl of chill, mix it with half a cup of self-sufficiency and add a dash of eagerness to learn new things, bake for twenty minutes, and you've got this guy! I like to think of myself as pretty easy-going; I hold myself to high standards for my own work and for keeping my word, but I'm always willing to help someone out or be there for them when they need me.

I like improve myself and learn new skills. I like to learn new skills and get better at old ones. Guitar, knitting, cooking, baking, whittling, lockpicking, running, all kinds of stuff I like to try my hand at.
What I’m doing with my life
I graduated from UNC recently, and for now I'm working in a lab getting more research experience before applying to grad school. I'm feeling really good about having my own life plan made of all my own choices. Really glad I ended up taking this gap year before applying to grad school; I've learned a lot about what I want for my future career.

Aside from leisure time and work, I like to run! I started running last year, so I'm still just a beginner. I'm trying to train myself for distance running. Some friends and I trained for a marathon last year, but because of some poor choices and being undertrained, while I finished, it was a struggle. So I want to get better and beat my own records!
I’m really good at
Well, I wouldn't say I'm really good at it, but I love cooking; I can find a recipe and cook it with reasonably good results, and since I'm not cooking professionally I think that's enough. I also love baking; it's wonderfully relaxing, smells great, and tastes great.

I haven't had a chance to play in years, but I love lacrosse. It's not the greatest game to watch, but it's a blast to play.

I will brew you a good cup of coffee, though, and I can probably pick out a great beer to go with any meal.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm probably drinking a cup of coffee no matter what time of day.

Either that, or my superfly style with a pipetter (just kidding, nobody has ever cared about that).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This one's tough. For books, one of my favorites is Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell. I enjoyed Michael Chabon's books, although I haven't read his latest. Neal Stephenson has written some very good things (Baroque Cycle especially), but I'm not so hot on his earlier books. Terry Pratchett writes gold, 'nuff said. Herbert, GRR Martin, Warren Ellis, Neil Gaiman, Bill Willingham, Joe Hill, Robert Kirkman, all good people.

Movies (I'm hoping TV shows count too): Arrested Development, The Office, The Illusionist, Pontypool, Iron Man... I'm sorry; I've enjoyed so many it's difficult to make a comprehensive list. Really, all I ask from a movie is that I enjoy myself. I'm not picky about the movies I like.

Music: I have a lot of Tom Waits kicking around my library, some more recent alternative rock like Soul Coughing, a smattering of folk stuff like Iron and Wine, a little bit of electronic stuff like Passion Pit. Lots of stuff. Lately I've also been dipping into older radio shows to listen to at work.
The six things I could never do without
My running shoes - Running's just about the only exercise I've ever been able to turn into a consistent routine that I actually enjoyed. Don't know what I'd do without it.
Music - It gets me through the day and keeps me company when work gets dull.
Sunny weather - Sun is happiness :D
A warm place to sleep - I can't stand being cold
A friend to hang out with - even if it's just doing something boring like work or studying, it makes it a lot easier to have other people around
A nice hot drink - Doesn't matter what; water would be fine. There's just something really soothing about a steaming mug right at hand.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My work; my research takes some creativity for thinking of new ways to apply concepts and work my way around a tricky problem. If you don't think about it off the clock, you fall behind. Luckily for me, I like doing it!

My own place in the world. I went to a Quaker high school, and its focus on community involvement and improvement left a pretty big impression on me. Ultimately the way I see my goal in life is that you should leave the world a better place than you found it, and that everyone's unique skills are leverage they can use to create the maximum effect. By honing my skills and dedicating myself to something that can improve lives, I hope to make a difference someday.

Also sometimes I get weird ideas out of the blue, so I spend time sketching them out and writing them down; I'll probably never get around to implementing them, but it's fun to look back at things I've thought up.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends - grabbing some dinner, chilling or playing frisbee, or going to see a movie. I love being with other people even if I'm doing something I'd rather not be doing (like studying for a test). I'm fine on my own if nobody's around, and sometimes I just want to be alone for a day, but given the chance I prefer to be with friends.

Basically, I do whatever I can do to chase off sleep, because sleep is for weeknights. Sometimes that's a movie with friends, sometimes it's games, sometimes it's just reading a book. That's my time to enjoy myself without worrying about something I have to do the next day.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I cannot stand the cold. I'd rather be sweaty and hot than even moderately chilly for a long length of time. There's few sensations I detest more than having my fingers stiffen up from cold.
